“Your faithfulness continues from generation to generation; You have established the earth, and it stands [securely].”
Psalms 119:90 AMP

Yesterday’s devotion focused on reminding of us the importance of faith, that is, believing God’s word and speaking it regardless of the circumstances surrounding us. Today, we will focus on the faithfulness of God.

It is important to have faith in God, to believe that with Him, all things are possible. Likewise, it is also important to know and to be certain of His faithfulness. He is loving, kind, abounding in grace and faithfulness.

As put in this text: “The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth (faithfulness).”
Exodus 34:6 AMP

This has been the character of God from the beginning of the world. His faithfulness has been consistent from generations to generations. The writer of Hebrews described Christ (who is God) like this:

“Jesus Christ is [eternally changeless, always] the same yesterday and today and forever.”
Hebrews 13:8 AMP

God is the same, He never changes and He will never change. When He speaks a word, He fulfills it because He is not only a man of His word, He is His word and His integrity can not be separated from His personality.

We see His faithfulness well played out in His salvation plan for us. Despite the disobedience of Adam, the nonchalant attitude of the Israelite and the wickedness of mankind, He still brought His salvation plan to fruition. Infact, His method of saving man has always been consistent – believe and you will be saved.

Contrary to what some people say, God didn’t save Abraham out of favoritism. The Bible said Abraham believed and it was accounted to him for righteousness. There’s no favoritism with Him. His standards have been the same from the beginning and as a matter of fact, if we don’t believe, He remains faithful (2 Timothy 2:13).

God won’t change for anyone, says the Bible (Hebrews 13:8). He doesn’t have variations at all (James 1:17).

Dear friends, this should spur you to absolutely put your trust in God. If He has said anything concerning you, you can bank on His word because He will definitely fulfill it.

Like the song says:

“Great is thy faithfulness, Oh God my father. There is no shadow of turning with thee. Thou changest not, thy compassion they fail not. As thou has been thou forever will be. Great is your faithfulness, morning by morning, new mercies, I see…”
